***UPDATE*** ROO WAS ADOPTED!!!! While the Shelter was actively working with local rescue to care for Roo, he was staying at White Oak Animal Hospital. Well, wouldn't you know it, one of the staff there fell in love and couldn't let Roo go, so he is now happy, safe and loved in a wonderful fur-ever home. Thank you so much to all who helped make this happy ending possible!!!

***UPDATE ON ROO***   After two days at the vet, Roo remains stable.  There has been no real change in his condition.  At this time, the vet still believes that he ingested some sort of toxin.  The medication administered to counter the toxin had little effect, leading the vet to think that it was in his system for several days if not weeks already.  At this point, it is  likely that the neurological damage is permanent but stable and Roo should be able to lead a happy (but very wiggly) life with the proper care.  Stafford County Animal Shelter is already working with local rescue groups to get Roo into foster care.  Roo will stay at WOAH until a foster is found.  Your response to this guy has been overwhelming.  We are still raising funds for his emergency vet care and will continue to do so until his bill has been paid.  Thank you so much for your support!

**EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE NEEDED**  Roo is an approximately 7 week old pit mix puppy that was brought into the shelter hours ago by a good samaritan who found him along the side of Rt. 1 (Northbound) in front of the Nissan Dealer.  Roo is shaking uncontrollably and was rushed right down to White Oak Animal Hospital.  Their preliminary assessment is that he has ingested some sort of toxin and needs immediate treatment and care.  He has already received an initial shot to counter toxins and is being closely monitored.  He will remain at WOAH overnight.  As you know, Stafford County Animal Shelter has extremely limited funds for these types of emergency care.  We have a goal of $500 for Roo's emergency treatment and continued care.  Please consider donating to help this little guy out.  Every donation makes a big difference.  Please also "like" and share this page.

As always, thank you for your support! The shelter animals are grateful.

{Any additional funds will be used for future SCAS pet needs.}
